Get Ready, Set,….Automate!

Reading Time: 1 minute

Test automation is becoming a must for meeting the challenges of modern software development. We use automation to replace repetitive and tedious manual testing; ensure the consistency and repeatability of tests; perform tests that are difficult to run manually and so on. Yet, many automation initiatives fail to deliver the desired results and tools often end up as “shelfware”. This webinar will explore the preconditions for successful test automation and describe some of the typical obstacles. What is needed in the organisation, what kind of specialized skills we need as testers and what can we expect in terms of return-on-investment?

Automation tools can be intrusive – not only to the system being tested, but also to the team and organisation where they are being introduced. Unrealistic expectations, inadequate processes and reluctance to change are typical challenges encountered when introducing automation. This presentation will also address some of the typical people issues.

Join John Fodeh in this 45 min webinar as we look into the prerequisites for test automation and uncover the common pitfalls. Learn to assess your organisation’s readiness for test automation and how to get more mileage for your automation efforts.
